TOPIC: WHAT HAVE YOU SEEN THE LORD DOING?
At that time I commanded Joshua: "You have seen with your own eyes all that the Lord your God has done to these two kings. The Lord will do the same to all the kingdoms over there where you are going. Do not be afraid of them; the Lord your God himself will fight for you.”
At that time I pleaded with the Lord: "Sovereign Lord, you have begun to show to your servant your greatness and your strong hand. For what god is there in heaven or on earth who can do the deeds and mighty works you do? Let me go over and see the good land beyond the Jordan—that fine hill country and Lebanon.”
But because of you the Lord was angry with me and would not listen to me. "That is enough,” the Lord said. "Do not speak to me anymore about this matter. Go up to the top of Pisgah and look west and north and south and east. Look at the land with your own eyes, since you are not going to cross this Jordan. But commission Joshua, and encourage and strengthen him, for he will lead this people across and will cause them to inherit the land that you will see.” So we stayed in the valley near Beth Peor.”
The Lord, despite His mercies and compassion to humanity, reward the good that people do and reprimand the bad deeds. So in each way, wheather good or bad, that we humans behave there is a "pay” from the Lord. We undoubtedly have seen how the Lord dealt with bad people in the Bible and some in our communities as well as the good people. These "doings” of the Lord is our example that He will do the same to all those planning evil against us. The good that we do today has its pay as well as the bad we do.
Prayer:-pray that the marvelous things that the Lord did in the days of our fathers of faith He will do double in our days
